Honda CBR Fireblade, Africa Twin & Gold Wing Recalled In India – The Problem & Solution

HMSI is recalling, in total, 84 units of the CBR Fireblade, Africa Twin and Gold Wing of the 2020 to 2022 model year. This is due to improper setting of the program in the PGM-FI Unit of the three bikes. As a result, Honda says there is a possibility of the engine stalling while riding. However, Honda has not reported any cases of failure in India to date.

As a corrective measure, Honda will resolve this issue by updating the software of the ECU with the correct program for the bikes that fall under this recall. As per Honda, the software update will take about 30 minutes.

Honda will carry out the software update at its BigWing Topline dealerships across India. Additionally, the update will be free of cost. This is irrespective of the warranty status of the motorcycle. As mentioned before, Honda requests customers to make appointments before visiting the dealership.
